Pam Cobb

Manager of Ministry Services

Pam Cobb became the Manager of Ministry Services for the Make and Deepen Disciples team after having served as Office Manager for Covenant Pines Bible Camp in Minnesota’s northwoods for 6 years. When you speak with her you will instantly realize she has lived in the south (Texas and Kentucky) for much of her life. She has extensive experience as a Director of Missions and Office Manager. Pam earned a Masters in Intercultural Studies from Asbury Seminary, in Kentucky. Her mission is “to enable Christians to be what God has called them to be.” She enjoys nature, traveling, quilting, and hosting tea parties (hats, silver, and all) Sophie and Toby, Pam’s cats, are not nearly as excited about moving to Chicago as Pam is. For Pam, being in Chicago means being able to visit her daughter’s family (grandchildren) in Indiana frequently and a quicker flight to Savannah to see her youngest daughter.
